Internet addiction (IA) has become a serious society problem due to the bad influence on the adolescents. Adolescence is an developmental stage, encompassed by alterations in physical, psychological, and social development, and those behavior characteristics of IA may introduce injuries to teenage development in the future. Thus, it is critical to understand the neurobiological mechanisms underlying this disorder. Although white matter integrity abnormalities have been reported in IA adolescents, little is known about the brain structural topological property changes and the relationship with the IA severity.
